Chris showing up being like, 'I got here as soon as I heard' with his jacket still on and then being the ONLY person that agrees with Claire that this is a horrible idea and is way too hard is the best part of the video

9:56 tbh I’ve been watching this channel for a long time now. I had no clue y’all were in New York. Like I knew somewhere in the east coast but WOW. Hello from Los Angeles California! My 7 year old nephew is fascinated with all the buildings in New York and has actually been in that building/took a picture at the top when his parents went on a business trip to NYC. I wanna go there lol.

4:40 "Your stomach would explode and you die" Next scene? Claire drinking soda. Jesus how hard are you pushing Claire that she is actively seeking the sweet release of death any opportunity she can get in the kitchen.

You could use an isi canister and use co2 charges on a hot sugar syrup mixture while constantly shaking to ensure it didn’t harden/set all at the bottom. They claim they can handle 50 bars of pressure which is around 725 psi. Then depressurization and hopefully some of the glasses have been trapped in the hard sugar. Wear goggles just in case?

You should have made the candy mixture, poured it into a co2 whipping container than pressed it in between two pans with weights holding it down, while in the dehydrator

"It's never Chris' fault. Chris shows up: "Chris! This is all your fault!" I love Claire.

I've been watching for a bit and this episode upset me. I think it's wrong for Claire to have been forced to do something she didn't want to. Even for views or her job.
